Once upon a time, if your friend offered you a coffee you were 100% guaranteed to end up with an instant coffee and hot water combo, possibly with milk that’s in date depending on the quality of your friends (I have been given squirty cream as a milk substitute before and this says a lot about my friendship group). These days you don’t have to rely on some soulless high street chain for your flat white or espresso doppio, you can make it in your own home where it is much more acceptable to drink coffee in your pants and you won’t look pretentious for worki
If you are a coffee lover you don’t want to be limited to only drinking your favourite coffee at home, the Rhinowares Hand Coffee Grinder allows you to grind coffee on the go, it has been constructed with a compact size that fits inside an AeroPress, allowing you to pack the complete coffee making kit without taking up too much space. It is made from a quality food grade stainless steel making it easy to clean and it also helps to reduce static, it has been tested and certified as ‘food safe’ by an independent laboratory.
If you have mastered the Nanopresso and want to increase your coffee fix, the Barista Kit expands your Nanopresso coffee making capacity into to a double espresso producing wonder. This small container is packed with a full set of accessories including a 140ml water tank, a larger espresso cup, two double espresso filter baskets, one single espresso filter basket, double espresso adapter ring and tamper.
The NS Adaptor allows the Nanopresso to become compatible with the Nespresso capsules, making the process of getting a cup of coffee even easier. This means you cut out the process of grinding, measuring, and tampering the coffee. It also makes it easier to just throw a couple of capsules in your pack. This means even the clumsiest coffee novice can’t go wrong, ensuring you get the perfect coffee time after time and best of all making things mess free and quicker to clean after each use.
Good news! Research now suggests drinking three cups of coffee a day can add years to your life, and I have chosen to interpret that as drinking as much of the black stuff as I can could potentially make me immortal. Serve jitters and anxiety aside it’s a good excuse to drink even more coffee. Enter the Nanopresso from Wacaco, this version comes with a tough little carry case, but other options include bright Red, Yellow and Orange Designs as well as versions compatible with Nespresso (these accessories can also be bought separately).
The Nomad Espresso maker has been designed to allow you to enjoy a decent coffee where ever you are, suitable for at home, in the office, glamping, boat trips or picnics; if you have ground coffee and access to hot water you can have a real espresso coffee. The Nomad comes in four colour choices, a bold, green, blue or red as well as a subtler white. They all have a clean and glossy finish which looks great and high end.
Whilst on a recent weekend away, we had just arrived in our holiday home after a five hour delayed flight and running off 1 ½hours sleep. One of my fellow travellers had been repeatedly grumbling about how desperate he was for a coffee – however, when I brandished an ancient looking jar of instant coffee under his nose, he looked at me like I had just offered him my sweat-ridden hiking socks in a cup of boiling water. The point I am trying to make here is that just because all coffee has the word “coffee” on the label, doesn’t mean it all tastes the same.
